Noita – What is Nightmare Mode?

Noita Nightmare Mode

The developers behind Noita added the new Nightmare mode for players looking for a challenge.

The Nightmare mode was added as a part of the seventh update to Noita alongside a new menu, new spells, and enemies. The update doesn’t say much about the mode aside from it being a “proper challenge even to the best Noita players.”

The new menu shows four different modes with one of them being the new Nightmare one. The others include a Normal Run, Daily Run, and an unknown one at this time.

How to Unlock Nightmare Mode

Nightmare mode is locked unless you have completed Noita. If you beat the final boss before the update went through, it still counts for unlocking it.

If we find out any new information about the Nightmare mode, we’ll be sure to update this article with it.
